Stats go up and down

    Nothing. The only change since May is that things are headed off a cliff. I got ONE Google referral in that time: from Greece.



    For months my sitemeter and wordpress stats tracked along, parallel. There was a difference, but it was constant – anywhere from 50-150 page views.

    Now, the difference between the two is significant – in the thousands. WordPress stats are swinging wildly again and freezing for hours at a time. I’m sending a detailed report – I thought the issue was resolved but apparently it’s not.


    I email, was told they’re still looking into the issue. Today, stats are certainly borked.



    Thanks for the update. Volunteers answering support questions do not have backend access to blogs – only Staff do. That’s why everyone posting here was told to contact Staff directly by filing a support ticket.



    It’s happening to me today. My stats go up and down from 148 – 206.


    Very, very, very behavior from stats today. I went backwards by more than 100 over the past hour.


    It’s been happening to me, late each day. The early count doesn’t seem to drop. But it’s starting now. The pageview count just went from 754 down to 745. As the day goes on, the fluctuations become greater, sometimes dropping around 100 views or so, then it starts to climb up again, first to where it had been, then higher. Then down again.

    I don’t see any pattern, but the fluctuation always starts at around 700 or 800 pageviews, and then it’s wildly unpredictable for the rest of the day.


    It just fluctuated again. The count was up to 775, but the next time I refreshed it when down to 756. I’m not going to post further details, but if anyone’s working on this, it might be interesting to know at what point the problem starts.


    I’m seeing it too — just dropped 130 views.

    Also, is anyone noticing a stall from 11pm to midnight Pacific time? Last night, I had no visitors during this period, but then I suddenly had 10 right after midnight. I’ve casually noticed that a few times recently.



    I have a 403 message in the stat menu??? Nothing will populate, and this has been for 3 days now, please help!,

    screwy again today

    I thought it might be resolved by now…but I see it’s still happening. Sigh… Wonder why it only starts to fluctuate later in the day? Wonder if it’s when the hits reach a certain threshhold?



    We Volunteers answering forum questions do not have a solution for the problem. If you haven’t already, please contact Staff on this issue.

    Detailed observations of what you are seeing as well as the steps you take to do so are greatly appreciated.


    again today



    @twelvebottles: Just saying “again today” won’t solve the problem. Did you follow timethief’s valuable advice and contact staff about this?


    @airodyssey see above — yes, I have an email exchange open with them. My comments here are to document the occurrences, as we all like to know it’s not just us.



    Someone wisely told me…don’t fret. It is all working out in the end. It may be frustrating in the interim to see the stats go up and down…but should we fret? We’ve alerted staff. Nothing–in the end–is amiss. We get all our stats. What else can we do? Peace to all of you who are frustrated.



    My problems with stats just started today. Or at least today was the first time that I noticed. Earlier today, my stats were displaying good round numbers, then when I went away and came back… poof! They were gone. If anyone finds them, please give them back. Thanks. On a serious note, every time I hit refresh the graph changes. Also, the graph is never consistent with the number underneath next to the “views today” link.
